This is becoming recognised not only by other governments but also by giant corporations such as Rio Tinto. Success is due to the commitment across agencies to cooperate, forget about bureaucracy and artificial boundaries and work as partners with the private sector to deliver outcomes. It is also due to the strategic approach adopted to using this specialised technology and ensuring everything is driven by real business needs which can be clearly explained to the private sector. The lead agency model adopted by Government has delivered the goods. The next step is to translate the interstate and international interest in these developments into real industry development in the NT. When opportunities arise, industry cant wait around for public servants to work out how to respond. To this end, the relevant business agencies are working together to develop a framework for licensing, intellectual property and industry partnerships that will enable decisions to be made quickly. I commend the Statement to the House.
